The Triangles Tallangatta

The Triangles revitalisation forms the final stage of the Destination Tallangatta Project.

Following extensive community consultation and co-design in late 2019, Council is pleased to unveil the final plan for the revitalisation of The Triangles in Tallangatta. Council invites feedback on the plan before 5pm Tuesday 24 November 2020.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the consultation. Since November last year input has been received from more than 170 community members, gaining an insight into what they would like to see at The Triangles.

Consultation has happened in a number of ways:

  • Public survey with 124 responses
  • Youth art competition with 3 entries
  • Focus group with 13 participants from Bolga Court
  • Focus group with 5 participants from community groups and schools
  • Focus group with 7 participants from Tallangatta Early Years
  • Community workshop with 15 participants
  • Council staff workshop with 10 participants
  • 4 customer requests recorded in the past 12 months

Overall, the key message from the community was to retain and protect the open, green and natural feel of The Triangles while making the area more functional for generations to come. The shade and amenity provided by the mature trees is highly valued by residents and a welcomed respite for visitors, providing a unique atmosphere in the centre of town.

Community members told us they wanted to see improved seating, improved safety of the playground, more pathways for greater accessibility, shade and shelter and more toilets. It was clear that we also needed to consider a place for the Sandy the War Horse statue to be positioned in the future.

Community ideas and feedback have been carefully integrated into the plan and Council now invites any further feedback.

The Triangles revitalisation involves:

  • Maintaining the green, natural and open space
  • Increasing and improving seating
  • Improving the safety of the playground with a barrier between the playground and the street
  • Improving accessibility through the inclusion of pathways
  • Increasing shade and shelter
  • A dedicated place for Sandy the War Horse statue
  • Refurbish information centre and toilets

Feedback can be provided via email to infrastructure@towong.vic.gov.au or by calling 02 6071 5100 before 5pm Tuesday 24 November 2020.

Plans can also be viewed at the Tallangatta Integrated Community Centre, or the Tallangatta Council Office.
